Newsletter – November 2023

Happy Thanksgiving!   I hope everyone’s got something or someone to be thankful for – I know I do.

Here’s our latest newletter:

In late-breaking news – per KAALTv: The Winona County District Court affirmed the Winona County Board of Adjustment’s decision to deny a variance request to Daley Farm, one of the area’s largest feedlots.

Hiawatha Holiday Gathering / Potluck

Please join us at 6 pm on Monday, December 4th at the Olmsted Historical Center (1195 W Circle Dr SW, Rochester MN 55902 / Google map.)  HTU will provide a main dish and beverages. 

Please bring a dish to pass and stories to share – and bring your spouse and fishing friends. All are welcome.

There will be a door prize or three to raffle off to attendees. Will a duck call be awarded to one lucky attendee?  Join us and find out!


If you’d like to be a TiC or volunteer at other MNTU Education events – please print out the form found here, fill it out, and mail it (like with a stamp and envelope!) to the address on the form. That’ll get your background check done, and once you pass, you’ll get added to the roster of possible volunteers.  We know its a little bit of a hassle, but it’s what we’re mandated by law to do. So please fill it out and send it in if you’d like to volunteer at our education events.
